Just as the King of Prussia passes by, Louise, a Dusseldorf housewife, reaches up to wave and discovers to her horror that her underpants have fallen to her ankles. Soon Louise’s madcap mishap is the talk of the town and a full fledged farce ensues. From the wild and crazy comic imagination of Comedian Steve Martin (yes, that Steve Martin!) this ribald romp is chock-full of innuendos, verbal jousting and physical comedy. Yah, das ist funny! *Adult language and situations.
Admission: $22.50-$53.50. Dock Street Theatre, 135 Church Street, Charleston, SC. For a complete schedule and more information visit www.charlestonstage.com

Anthony and Rosemary are two introverted misfits straddling 40. Anthony has spent his entire life on a cattle farm in rural Ireland, while Rosemary lives right next door, determined to have him, and watching the years slip away. Outside Mullingar is a delightful romantic comedy in which we pull for these two eccentric souls as they fight their way towards solid ground and some kind of happiness. 2014 Tony Nominee Best Play

Patricia Boinest Potter creates enigmatic artworks in the form of three-dimensional maps that she refers to as Isomorphic Map Tables and 1:1 Map Insets. Ostensibly representing a one-hundred-mile stretch of northern Alabama, these works also expand outward to the cosmos, then inward again into the dark energy of particle physics. The exhibition will include a series of six Map Tables and one hundred 1:1 Map Insets. The show offers a tantalizing mix of technical experimentation, metaphoric expansiveness, and curiosity in every square inch.
Curated by Mark Sloan, director and chief curator of the Halsey Institute, the exhibition also features a video about the artist and a 120-page color catalogue. This project is funded in part by the South Carolina Arts Commission which receives support from the National Endowment for the Arts. The exhibition will travel for several years throughout the United States after it debuts in Charleston.

The kindness of strangers amidst great danger has kept the Underground Railroad alive to this day. In this play, we see the freedom train in action as two stories unfold a hundred years apart. In 1939 as World War II begins, young Jews escaping Germany find inspiration in a book about the journey of young slaves escaping the South in 1839. Intertwined in their stories are beautiful African American and Jewish songs that speak to a legacy of hope through the ages. Their stories stand as a testament to the unimaginable courage to reach out and help no matter your color, your beliefs or your station in life.
Admission: $15. Chapel Theatre, 172 Calhoun Street,Charleston, SC. For a complete schedule and more information visit www.theatre.cofc.edu

Based on Henrik Ibsen’s classic An Enemy of the People, Rogers’ adaptation updates the action to a small, Southern, coastal town. Dr. Stockmann discovers that an outbreak of Fishteria, a strange disease that causes bloody sores to appear on fish, is directly related to local hog production. The ecological breakthrough puts the doctor at odds with the long suffering town’s surging economic growth, the Lowcountry Resort and Spa, and a little detail called the Hippocratic Oath. Get ready; tourist season is on the way.
